Anoka Hennepin Credit Union is a state-chartered credit union. Originally chartered in 1963 as the Anoka Hennepin School District #11 Employees Credit Union, we changed our name to Anoka Hennepin Credit Union in 1993 to more accurately reflect our wide community base. We now serve more than 17,000 members from five locations—Champlin, Circle Pines, Coon Rapids, Forest Lake, and St. Francis.

A service-first financial cooperative, AHCU is owned by its members and governed by a member-elected board of directors. From our founding as a financial institution for school district employees to our current community-based charter, we have been dedicated to the credit union movement’s credo: "Not for profit, not for charity, but for service."
